The Teton Pass in Wyoming is designated as Wyoming Highway 22. At the state line, it becomes Idaho State Highway 33, then continues northwest to Victor and north to Driggs. The pinnacle of the pass is 8,431 feet (2,570 m) above sea level approximately 11 miles (18 km) out of Jackson. The maximum grade on the road is 10%, and several avalanche slide paths traverse the road along its length, including Glory Bowl slide area. During the winter months, the road is often closed in the early mornings for avalanche control by the Wyoming Department of Transportation. The area is popular for backcountry skiing, snowboarding, and mountain biking.
The pass is a few miles south of Grand Teton National Park. Parts of the route to the pass are located in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest and in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. The small town of Wilson sits at the base of the east side of the pass, while Teton Village and the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort ski area are northeast of the pass.
